Usage statistics for plugins

    When a blog checks for updates on plugins it sends as far as I know a list of all enabled plugins to the server to get information on whether a plugin is out of date or not.

    I think it should be possible for the wordpress.org server to analyse those request and generate usage statistics for plugins from it.
    Then we could have things like "This plugin is installed on X blogs".

    This would be great for plugin developers to see know how much their "plugin" is actually used ("downloads" only gives a very rough idea about that because you never know if people actually install and use a plugin after downloading it).

    With the data sent on update-check it should also be possible to provide statistics for different plugin versions ("Version Y is still used on X blogs") and of course a timeline similiar to the "downloads" statistics one would be nice as well...

    update_check sends the WordPress Version (or WordPress MU Version) as the UserAgent string... so the information is there and could be extracted by the server.

    That would be really useful for plugin devs as well, to be able to see on which versions of wordpress people run their plugins on.

    The only problem is that such statistics can be and will be easily abused...
